I wouldn't doubt that everyone is pretty well sick of this subject, but here it is again anyway!
Tire pressure. I've been riding my GL1000 for 40 years now, and I still don't know what would be the best tire pressure to put in my tires.
The owner's manual, written 40 years ago says,"vehicle capacity load limit 360 lbs." Believe me, mine has all of that. It also says that the front should be 28 psi, and the rear should be 40 psi. The tires I run are rated 41 psi max.
I usually run 32 front and 38 rear, but I'm not sure why. I can see having the 40 psi in the rear tire due to load. But I think I'm running 30, or 32, or 34 psi because someone at one time or another has said, "28 psi, that's too low." How do they know that?
Why is the factory spec. 28 psi, if that's too low? Wouldn't they likely know the best tire pressure. After all they built the bike.
Also, do you think that Honda, if they were to rewrite the GL1000's manual today, would change those factory spec. pressures, based on the fact that tire technology is 40 years improved?
The pressure's getting to me
